Lady Gaga, Priyanka Chopra, Billy Porter and more inspire Met Gala memes


Written by Rob Picheta, CNN

The Met Gala and its flexible theme, "Camp: Notes on Fashion," inspired a collection of flashy and varied visuals at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York on Monday night.

And these looks, in turn, provoked a few thousand memes.

The internet has revealed in dissecting and mocking the most appealing fashion statements – and no one has received more social media treatment than Lady Gaga.

The star's choice was long awaited and she did not disappoint, making an elaborate entry that involved not one but four different clothes. It was the final part of the routine – in which she took off her underwear and posed on the stairs – that excited the viewers.

Other participants also did not go unnoticed. Celine Dion wore an Oscar de la Renta dress of 22 pounds that was created by 52 "master embroiderers and included 3,000 hours of hand beading. (Or, as the internet has seen, a mass drainer).

Stage star Billy Porter went for an even more elaborate appearance, being taken to the red carpet in a lounge chair by six shirtless men wearing gold trousers and headpieces.

His own ancient Egyptian-inspired outfit, with wings and a golden crown, contributed to the show.

While some admired the vision, others wondered if he had taken a page out of the Harry Potter books.

Priyanka Chopra and husband Nick Jonas also inspired a book-based comparison. This time, "Game of Thrones" was the series in question.

Elsewhere, eight months after a much-publicized fight, Nicki Minaj and Cardi B channeled their animosity into a healthier new arena – but equally competitive.

Both used long, fluid trains for the event – and dueling dresses sparked many online debates.

Frank Ocean's more subtle appearance was more "security" than "international star."

And some noted the absence of a frequent participant.

But maybe it was Katy Perry who made the choice of clothes more dazzling. Dressed like a chandelier, her gaze was made for meme-fiction.

Many commentators took a step back from the individual clothes to admire the general theme of the evening.

On a red carpet full of stars, however, some were more inspired by an uninvited guest.
